Northwest Arkansas is a mixing pot of various cultures, thanks to both the University of Arkansas and the unique spirit of Fayetteville. Mexican food has become a staple in town, and the options for authentic and affordable Mexican cuisine are boundless.

Being in the South, Fayetteville is home to many Southern traditions, including family-owned Mexican restaurants. While we can’t promise to end the “cheese-dip vs. queso” debate, anyone who respects a high-quality Mexican meal can agree that Fayetteville’s local options are top-notch.
